From 3 to 5 June 2014, the UNITI-EXPO 2014 exhibition was successfully held in Stuttgart (Germany).
This event was held for the first time, its concept provides for a full-fledged replacement of the Automechanika exhibition in Frankfurt.
Like Auto Mechanics, UNITI-EXPO is held 1 time in 2 years, for even years. However, UNITI-EXPO is a fully specialized exhibition dedicated to roadside service and related industries: Gas stations, car washes, logistics of petroleum products, oil depots. Moreover, the exhibition provides for the participation of oil companies themselves, as well as companies offering services and products for gas station stores – the Convenience Store segment.
The exhibition was held in Messe Stuttgart – the exhibition complex of the city, located in close proximity to the local international airport near the A8 motorway. The convenient location and availability of hotels, including inexpensive ones, presupposes a larger quorum of exhibitors and visitors on our subject. Which was proved this year.
Our company first learned about UNITI-EXPO in 2013, participating in the International Specialized Seminar ERPEC 2013 in Nice (France). Both of these events are organized by com-a-tech GmbH, under the patronage of a specialized publication www.petroplaza.com . Accordingly, the level of organization was the highest. An overview of the exhibition can be found here
The expositions were placed in three pavilions, divided thematically into 8 main areas. A separate pavilion was given over to services for shops and cafes at the gas station – Convenience Store
All leading market participants took part in the Expo: WAYNE, GILBARCO, PETROTEC, OPW, TATSUNO, FRANKLIN FUELING SYSTEM, BEVER INNOVATIONS, SGB, ELAFLEX and many others.
LLC “LIGIR” held negotiations with existing and potential suppliers, we studied the novelties of the industry, which we will soon present on the Russian market.
We especially want to mention the products, novelties and our negotiations with the Portuguese company PETROTEC, whose official dealer in Russia is LLC LIGIR. In one of the following news, we will specifically highlight the fuel distribution equipment of this company, with a large number of photos and descriptions. Also in the section “PETROTEC fuel dispensers” we will place a new catalog of the company’s products.
In general, we rate the UNITI-EXPO show itself and our participation in it as extremely effective.
